    "Dropbox allows you to access all of your files on the go from your Android device. You can read the files with third party apps such as Adobe Reader on your Android device. You can use Dropbox for your personal files or your work files. With the right access you can use DropBox to manage both work and personal account. Dropbox easily integrates with other third party apps such as Microsoft 365 to allow easier use to dropping your files into DropBox. You can share your files with other work users or others in your personal life so they to can work with you everywhere. "
